    I've worked several times a month at a dairy goat farm, but I'm finally getting some chickens for my backyard! I've had them before, but we've given the coop a facelift, secured the yard and picked out breeds. I want to get a Rhode Island Red, an Ancona and a Easter Egger. I love this website! Lot's of good information, I'd love to hear tips from everyone!

    The yard needs to be secure for serenity [​IMG]

    The correct feed is very important and treats are always great
    so I use a lot of Turkey feed for the 20+ protean [​IMG]

    Bobcat the predator is something you will always need to guard
    agents as they strike day and night and can destroy years of
    work in a minute so a strong coop is needed [​IMG]



    [​IMG]
    These chicks were put outside in January at 3 weeks of age
    but need to be caged up on the porch of our work shop so
    their health and well being can be cared for ..... [​IMG]





    you have chosen a great flock of chickens to start with [​IMG]
